CATALOGUE NOTES
Trial proof 1.
Born in 1921 in Bengal, Somnath Hore’s had an interest in humanist themes. He graduated from Government Art College, Calcutta and had the chance to study under Haren Das. His paintings and prints often resonated with his feelings of anger and pain. As he was also a member of the Communist Party, his socialist ideologies often influenced his artwork. His subject matter drew attention to the life of people in Bengal; the impoverished and suffering social class represented the pain caused from the Famine of 1943. This lithograph is one of Somnath Hore's early experimentation in Wounds.
